Episcopal Bishop Chased Down by Elderly Biker BEFORE She Came Back to the Fatal Scene She Caused

there is a fifth."

EXCLUSIVE: Woman bishop exposed as hit-and-run driver in fatal crash was chased down and confronted by a 65-year-old bicyclist BEFORE she came forward to police

  • Bishop Heather Elizabeth Cook smashed into custom bicycle maker Tom Palermo, 41, on Saturday afternoon in Baltimore causing his death
  • The Episcopal Bishop of Maryland left the scene and returned 20 minutes later 
  • Bicyclist Moncure Lyon, who was among the first on the scene of the accident, followed her to her home 
  • He told DailyMail.com she only gave a statement to the Baltimore police after he followed her 
  • Maryland records show Cook was arrested in 2010 after reportedly blowing 3X the legal driving limit
  • She was so drunk she had thrown up on herself and was driving on the road shoulder with a shredded tire 
  • Palermo, whose Facebook page proudly displays his custom bikes, was rushed to a nearby hospital before succumbing to his injuries

The woman bishop who killed a cyclist in a hit-and-run was chased down by a 65-year-old man on his bicycle after she fled the scene of the accident, DailyMail.com has learned.

Heather Elizabeth Cook, 58, has been suspended by the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, where she is the second highest-ranked member of the clergy, while the hit-and-run is investigated.

The bishop left bike-maker Tom Palermo to die by the side of the road after she struck him on Saturday. She later returned to the scene in what Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton - the diocese's most senior leader-  described as 'taking responsibility for her actions'.

Too young: The victim was Tom Palermo, 41 - a Baltimore bicycle enthusiast who custom-made bike frames as part of his one-man business

But cyclist Moncure Lyon, who was among the first on the scene of the accident told DailyMail.com that it was only after he followed her to her home in a gated community that she gave a statement to the Baltimore police.
The development came as it was revealed that when Bishop Heather Elizabeth Cook was arrested for DWI four years ago she was so drunk she had thrown up on herself and was driving on the road shoulder with a shredded tire.
Lyon said he saw a green Subaru station wagon driving slowly by the scene as Palermo was being taken to the hospital. 'I could see its front windscreen was caved in and spidered.'
Lyon, who two years ago received a broken collarbone, two separated shoulders and torn rotator cuffs in a hit-and-run just yards from Saturday's accident, hopped on his bike and followed the damaged car as Cook left the scene on Baltimore's Roland Avenue.
'I was determined not to let her get away because the man who hit me was never found,' Lyon said.
